Come lay your head an my heart
Soon be apart, stay here the touch of morning
I'm glad we're leaving as friends
Baby, by the way I forgot to say

Can't we try
Love was never born to say goodbye
Just another helpless fool in love is what I am
But I don't give a damn
Sorry, I forgot myself
I guess that I'm just not myself

And I know that we're not supposed to cry
Love was supposed to die when people get to know each other
In case I don't see you again
Really wish you well
Baby, this is hell

Can't we try
Love was never born to say goodbye
Touch me one more time and make me feel that I'm alive
And if we don't survive
At least we'll have a moment here
With honest pain and tears

Then say goodbye
Come lay your head down on my heart
The morning suddenly leads you
You know, yet I don't need you
We can't go back to yesterday
Go away
Girl, I wished you'd stay

Can't we try
Love was never born to say goodbye
Touch me one more time and make me feel that I'm alive
And if we don't survive
And we'll end like we began
And even though it's over

Can't we try
Let's go back to yesterday
Just another helpless fool in love is what I am
But I don't give a damn
See, once before I set you free
I just got to hold you close to me

Can't we try
Love was never born to say goodbye
I want you to touch me, touch me one more time and make me feel that I'm alive
And if we don't survive
Then we can end like we began
And even though it's over

Can't we try
Let's go back to yesterday
See, I'm just another, just another helpless fool in-in love is what I am
But I don't give a damn
See, once before I set you free
I got to have you

Can't we try
Love was never born to say goodbye
